Thanks everybody for replying. I'm not new to photography even if it appears so, but I am still learning. My camera is a Canon Rebel Xsi, 12 mp. And yes I know there are cameras out there with a lot higher mp. I'll be honest and tell you I was scared to death to do this...trying to sell on a stock site. A couple of years ago, I joined a local photography club. One of the first meetings I went to they had someone giving a lecture and the guy was very technical. Believe it or not I quickly realized I understood more he was talking about than a lot of the people there. After attending several meetings, talking with and listening to the others I felt like I was back in high school. It was very cliquish, more like "the good ole' boys club". I also realized the pictures I was taking were not the quality I was used to from myself. I was letting things they said play on my mind and something that had always given me a sense of calm, didn't do so anymore. That was another reason I held back from downloading to a stock site.
But guys, I appreciate everything ya'll said (I'm from North Carolina and the ya'll means all of you). To me photography is an escape. Yes I want to sell my pictures and I have sold a few before. I don't take a lot of shots with people in them. It seems when I have I've caught things people didn't or wouldn't want others to see. I would love new equipment but right now I can't afford it. Bare with me, keep giving me advice. If I ask what you consider a stupid question remember we all have to start somewhere, we're at a lot of different levels. To me pictures are like people, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
Thanks again and keep on shooting!
